The UZH Postdoc Team Award recognises interdisciplinary postdoctoral teams for an outstanding and independent scientific achievement. The achievement should be characterised by societal relevance and/or impact. To honour research as a collaborative endeavour, the prize will be awarded to teams rather than individual researchers.
The UZH Postdoc Team Award is funded by a private donation to the President's Fund of the UZH Foundation.
The total award sum is CHF 10’000 which can be equally divided among up to two teams. The award ceremony will take place during a dinner with the donor in early December or January. The winners are expected to be present.
Please submit the following documents with your nomination:
Please note that any further documents or appendices (like tables, graphs, etc.) will not be considered in the evaluation.
The nomination documents can be submitted in German or English and must be sent in one single PDF-file to email@example.com.
If you have any questions, please contact the UZH Grants Office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: 18 September 2023
